As someone who has been in/around the Aviation industry my entire life, the disappearance of MH370 has been a confounding event since it occurred. It is truly unacceptable and inexplicable that a commercial aircraft could seemingly disappear into thin air. Yet here we are years later and IMO there is still not a reasonable hypothesis as to the whys and how’s of this event. While I really enjoyed Dave’s first book, this tome left a bit to be desired and essentially serves as a rehash of open source news reports surrounding the disappearance. Maybe that’s because I followed the event closely and and nothing provided is new information but regardless I don’t feel any more informed than I was when I started the book.
If you don’t understand aviation and only paid passing attention to the incident at the time, the book will be more informative to you than it was to me. With the available technology that exists today, it is unfathomable that the industry and its regulators haven’t moved further faster in regard to tracking aircraft worldwide - never-mind in parts of the planet where reliable, accurate radar systems don’t exist. As Dave indicates, it’s all about cost and that’s the bottom line. Why would anyone spend billions to fix a problem that has a total financial impact in the hundreds of millions?
